An activist of Manipur Students Association holds a banner during a peace rally in New Delhi to appeal to the Naga student unions to end their economic blockade of highways leading to Manpiur, which had cut off the state from the rest of the country, leading to extreme shortage of essential items. The 52-day-long blockade imposed by Naga students on the national highways in Manipur was temporarily 'suspended' following Prime Minister's and Home Minister's assurances to them. The All Naga Students Association Manipur (ANSAM) and Naga Students Federation had blocked the NH-39 since June 20 after Ibobi Singh government had declared June 18 as a state holiday in memory of 14 people who were killed in "integrity agitation" of June 2001 in Imphal. The Naga students claimed that the government decision was against their plan for unification of all Nagas living in Manipur with "Greater Nagaland".

Manipuri students stage protest in Bangalore condemning the killing of Manorama Devi and demanding the withdrawal of the Armed Forces Special Power Act in Manipur. The Manipur Government has partially withdrawn the controversial Army Act from seven assembly constituencies in Imphal municipal area on a "trial basis". The move by Congress- led government of Chief Minister O.Ibobi Singh came in defiance of the Centre, which has been saying that the act should stay. The partial withdrawal of the act averted an immediate crisis for the Okram Ibobi Singh government as eight Congress MLAs, including two ministers had threatened to resign from the assembly on the issue. But the state continued to witness protests, agitations and bandhs spearheaded by 32 organisations who have now given a call to boycott all "Indian-made" goods.
